There is no denying that Dr. Ball is a UCLA Fan. Today he witnessed an epic battle of redemption, as the Bruins defeated the Steve Lavin led St. Johns Red Storm in men’s basketball, 66-59. Dr. Ball spent some time with former UCLA head football coach Terry Donahue, as well. Coach Lavin, despite using some of his brilliant motivational tactics, lost in his first game back at UCLA since returning to coaching. From the Associated Press: Lavin’s biggest win so far in New York came last week, when the Red Storm upset then-No. 3 Duke 93-78. He and his staff wore white tennis shoes today, perhaps a superstitious nod to the footwear they had on against the Blue Devils.
